An Elmont woman destroyed artwork, antiques, electronic devices, appliances, musical instruments, sentimental personal items and even the structure of the house itself during an August 2015 break-in at her ex-husband’s upstate home.

Police estimated the damage at more than $350,000.

Ana D. Rockman, 61, was arrested on felony burglary and criminal mischief charges after surrendering May 22 at State Police barracks in Kingston.

She was charged with second-degree burglary and second-degree criminal mischief and was arraigned in Town of Woodstock Court before Town Judge Richard Husted.

Records indicate she was released on $5,000 bail, but was ordered to surrender her passport.

The arrest followed the issuance of an arrest warrant stemming from a nearly two-year-long investigation by State Police, Forensic Investigation Unit troopers, the State Police Intelligence Center and Town of Woodstock police.

Police said the break-in occurred at the home in Bearsville in August 2015. Additional details were not immediately available.
